Walk around ancient fortresses. Go on a few fascinating excursions. Relax in the famous parks of Gatchina..
The incredibly multifaceted history of the Leningrad region has left many interesting places to explore. There are also ancient castles, fortresses, cathedrals and palaces, monuments and park ensembles. Over the weekend alone it is difficult to cover everything, but we decided to choose one direction in which we planned to visit the most remarkable sights. We will head southwest along the coast of the Gulf of Finland, after which we will turn towards Kingisepp.
